Tenuta Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2009
Color: Ruby red, tending to garnet red with ageing. Bouquet: Penetrating, very full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. Flavor: Dry, warm, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent. Food Combinations: Roasts, grilled, spit-roast or braised meats, game, ripe cheeses.
The “Caparzo” name seems to originate from Ca' Pazzo, as seen in several ancient maps. The vineyards, cellars and all wine-making equipment were developed towards the end of the 1960s, with progressive adaptation and constant up-dating of both the land and the cellars. Innovative cultivation systems and, in particular, several clones are still experimented today on the estates - extending over an area of 190
Purple juju fruits and a hint of herbaceousness lead into a very easy and soft palate that is smooth with blue and black berries. Fresh and even a bit bright.
Candied dark berry flavors and a little smokey and herbal. The finish was a bit vinegary for me.
